Description The Blues Accordin To Lightnin Hopkins
In his own words and own own music, Lightnin Hopkins revels the inspiration for his blues. He sings, jives & ponders. He boogies at an outdoor barbecue and a black rodeo, and takes you with him on a homecoming visit to his boyhood home of Centerville, Texas.

Blank has captured Lightnins blues in their fullest, darkest power. The film reaches past the impish bluesman himself, into the red-clay Texas, into hard times, into blackness, into the sensesyou might begin to understand the reasons why black Texas people might be in love with this land and yet angry with the poverty. Country blues is passing away faster than nature herself is disappearingYou will not be able to see many films like this before longIts a beautifully made film. See it and feel. Carmen Moore, The Village Voice
